Becoming the Point of a Pencil at West Point Grey
Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
West Point Grey Community Centre, 4397 West 2nd Ave, Vancouver
Become the point of a pencil or another drawing tool in this exciting opportunity to create gigantic works of art, drawn virtually on the landscape. Graham Brown and Robert Scharein lead participants in using GPS-enabled iPhones to collaborate with other players to push, pull, create and modify objects they see on their screen. Bring your iPhone if you have one or join up with a small group of walkers as one pencil point. This experience will challenge your sense of scale and engage your imagination.
These shots show the drawing that is being worked on and the local map where the participants were at the time. Screen shots of distortion of the circle from a Vancouver device by real players in Vancouver, Dallas, and the robots in San Francisco. Spot the Robots.
